Spanish Support For Alexa
Amazon , one of the world’s biggest providers of products has announced it is beta testing a Spanish language Alexa experience for residents in the United States. The program will allow Amazon to incorporate a better understanding of word choice and local humor as it has done with prior language launches in other regions.
Manufacturers who want to build “Alexa Built-in” products for Spanish-speaking customers can also now request early access to a related Alexa Voice Services (AVS) developer preview with Bose, Facebook and Sony already on board. Developers have also been able to create skills in English in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, and India; as well as in German, Japanese, French (in France and in Canada), and Portuguese (in Brazil).
Last summer, Google Home released user support for Spanish, in addition to launching the device in Spain and Mexico which has given them the upper hand in the “smart home assistant” market. Amazon also trails Apple in terms of support for Spanish in the U.S., as Apple added support for Spanish to their offering in the market, the HomePod, in the U.S., Spain and Mexico in September 2018 which comes a bit as a surprise since Spanish is a widely spoken language in the U.S. with 53 million speakers.
